Menopause and Menopausal Syndrome
Menopause is not, in itself, a disease. Many women worldwide smoothly transition through this time with little or no symptoms. However, especially in America more women than not do experience mild to severe discomfort and imbalance during this time. Unfortunately, even if you’ve been able to quell the symptoms temporarily, the overall impact on the system creates deeper and progressive issues that need to be treated, not masked.
Yes, there is an effective & natural alternative to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Did you know that in China there is almost no incidence of menopausal syndrome (the term for the unpleasant effects that often accompany cessation of the menstrual cycle)? More and more women each day across the world are benefitting from the powerful effects of acupuncture and herbal medicine in addressing hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, insomnia, and other unpleasant symptoms. In addition to treating your symptoms, Chinese medicine helps the body to find balance much more quickly, also addressing the emotional and stressful elements of life that may be affecting a woman at this time, such as caring for parents, working full-time, or seeing children off to college.
